Why do people watch TNA these days?

I'm not posting this as a means to troll or anything if the title sounded a little like that.

I stopped watching TNA around the time Bound For Glory was coming up so that must have been around October time I think. Have I missed much? Is the whole Fortune/Immortal thing really good? Is TNA pushing younger guys alot more? Is the X Division still alive? etc Basically how is do you think TNA is at the moment?

The main reason I stopped watching was mainly due to the ridiculous stuff with Jarrett issuing MMA challenges, 'killing' Samoa Joe etc. Also this whole EV2 thing got on my nerves a bit.

What I did like when I was watching was MCMG's/Beer Money excellent tag-matches in what I believe was some kind of best-of series if I remember correctly? I also remember Lethal and Flair's promos together, the way Flair would go red like a tomato, rip of yet another perfectly good jacket and proceed to elbow drop it followed by a hissy-fit on the floor like a toddler in a supermarket had me in stitches.

So what I'm basically asking is what TNA is like these days? Do you like it? Why? Have I missed much? What are the knockout's like now? How is Hardy doing as a heel? etc

What do you think of TNA right now and why do you watch it?

TNA is very focused on the Younger Guys and Homegrown talent. Fortune is the top face stable and the X Division is having a tournament of sorts to determine the number one contenders for the X title.

TNA should be exploiting WWE's PG-rating limitations but they don't do that effectively either. I think TNA have angled it so that their main garbage (hardcore) wrestler Abyss is sidelined indefinitely with a kayfabe injury when they should be making the most of him. I will admit, Abyss calling his weapon 'Janice' is quite a good touch.

I'm surprised TNA haven't created a couple of hardcore factions based on these wrestlers. Call one 'Straightjacket Sanity' and the other 'Blood Brothers' or something...

The most controversial thing I saw on TNA was the aftermath of a haircut match when Raven got his head shaved with clippers. Due to a genuine mistake made by 'The Sinister Minister' James Mitchell, The clipper blades were unprotected so they were shaving not only Raven's head but skin off his scalp too, it was pretty sick. Maybe the promoters could concentrate on those kind of moments.

While TNA are at it, get their knockouts to do something sexy and provocative once in a while, break down those barriers and make TNA earn that 18 certificate.
That's boxing TNA in. The majority of wrestlings merchandise sales come from kids. It's one thing to be edgier, but being excessively violent or sexual just to be different overshadows the product and it's alienating a large part of wrestling's current audience.
